27th September 2011

OctoberFest 2011Now in its third successful year, Hampshire’s OctoberFest will be a great family day out where you can learn about local crafts and produce, sample all of Hampshire’s finest beers and experience all the sights and sounds of a traditional County Fayre. It takes place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October 2011, based at Basingstoke’s Milestones Museum and on the adjacent parkland.

There will be over 80 of Hampshire’s finest beers and ciders to choose from, local crafts and food producers, vintage vehicles and live music, and younger visitors will love the animal farm, storytelling, Punch and Judy and circus skills workshop.

We have 8 family tickets up for grabs, worth £22.75 each (2 adults & 2 children aged 5-15), which include entrance to the museum as well.
